    Ok I used the search feature and I am going to say I cant do this but I would like to mkae sure by asking my own question :)

    I have a radeon x850pro video card, a 19" lcd and a 19" crt, a disabled onboard (STOCK) video card as well. Is it possible to run dual monitors on this win xp system ?

    I seem to remember in the manual of my radeon card it said I was able to.

    Thank you

    Yes, it should work fine. Hook the VGA plug to the CRT and the DVI to the LCD. Then go into ATI Catalyst Control Center and make your LCD desktop 1 (primary) and the CRT as desktop 2. You can set the resolution independently for each monitor.

    You could also hook-up the s-video output to your TV.

    If you don't have a DVI interface display, an adapter comes with most ATI products that will allow you to use two VGA devices.
